4 Condolences for “Gladys Goodwin”

  1. Deb Vaughn

    Carl, I am so sorry. I know how it feels to loose your mother. That in itself is hard but I also know how hard it is to loose her in December. My mom has been gone 3 years now and it is very hard. If you need to talk I am here for you. Deb

  3. Dupe

    My name is Dupe, I am a volunteer here in Lafayette trying to console and bring comfort to those who are mourning for the loss of their loved ones. I am so sorry for your loss. Please accept my sincere sympathy. We should all be grateful now that she is no longer suffering but sleeping/resting according to John 11:11 with no pain and waiting for the day when she will be awakened from her deep sleep. What a wonderful day that will be! To us living that day is going to feel like forever but to Mrs. Goodwin it is going to feel like just yesterday. Another promise that she is patiently waiting for is in John 5:28,29 that says in part “Do not marvel at this because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out”. In the meantime, I hope that God who is a God of all comfort will comfort your entire family during this difficult time of yours. Once again, please accept my deepest sympathy and have a blessed day.
